Our Online Consult service gives you access to round the clock medical guidance allowing you to check symptoms, receive medical advice and
contact the surgery 24-7 through our online portal.
You will gain access to a wealth of medical information including articles and videos.
By filling in a simple health enquiry form you will be able to read information on how to treat your symptoms and what to do next.
The form will then come through to the surgery where we will review the information provided and we aim to respond to you within two working days.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION UPDATES -
FLU VACCINE CLINICS - Flu vaccine clinics - This years campaign will be a little different this year.
We are now offering flu clinics on a Tuesday from 08:00 - 17:30. We can only offer Tuesday at the moment due to having to keep strict social distancing rules for both patients and staff. Due to maintaining social distancing between patients, we have to make innovative use of our building, with one way in, one way out. Signs and a staff member will be on hand to guide you. It is requested that anyone attending the surgery MUST wear a face mask. You will be asked to sanitize your hands and will have your temperature taken before hand. If your temperature is high and is above 37.8, you will be asked to leave the building immediately and be given information on what to do.
Please contact the surgery to book your appointment
PLEASE BE MINDFUL THAT EVERYTHING WILL TAKE A LITTLE LONGER THAN USUAL, SO WE CAN ONLY OFFER APPOINTMENT TIMES FOR OUR CLINICS.
